BANGKOK: The 18-year-old Saudi asylum seeker who fled her family and harnessed the power of Twitter to stave off deportation from Thailand was en route to Canada, in a surprise twist after officials gave heavy hints she was bound for Australia.

Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland says Canada is standing up for human rights around the world by granting Qunum asylum.
